Novica Velickovic-Serbia and Real Madrid

The Euroleague rising star trophy winner of the 2008/09 season is looking back on a tremendous year. Leading a young Partizan team to the play offs of the Euroleague while scoring 11.5 points and grabbing 5.1 rebounds already was a great surprise and earned him the February MVP trophy. But things went even better at EuroBasket where the power forward contributed heavily to Serbia's run to the finals. He was among the top ten at three-point field goals made in the competition. Scoring 11.1 ppg and being his team's leader in rebounds (4.9) underlines the importance of the 23 year old Velickovic.
